blue neon - button swap ?
« on: February 19, 2018, 07:15:46 AM »
hey guys,been trying to swap the playlist button to chart button in the blue neon 1080 skin.

no matter what i try,it will not save. Is it possible to swap these buttons...or delete the playlist button and add a new chart button in its place ?

I've played around with the skintool a few years ago,but its still way over my head lol.

Any help greatly appreciated.

paul.

Hi Paul,

Doing something like this is very easy to do, all what you need to do is find the button that you wish to replace, right click on it, and then select another button to load, make sure it is in the skin directory of the skin that you are trying to change.

Once you have done that, just click on save skin and it should work.

Regards

Mark

Hi Paul,

I think I have that skin somewhere, but I do not think that it is as easy as just changing a button, you would need to change the actual button that goes to the chart skin, as some placements are just for that page.

I shall see if I can find the skin and have a look.

Yeah the actual buttons on screen are fixed for that page

so add to playlist is simply that, it cannot be chopped and changed, there is no way of adjusting this to click thru to something else.

The only way that you can get rid of it is either drag off the screen, or resize it to 0 x 0

cheers Mark. Really appreciate it. I think the blue neon skin really shows off the potential of this software.

ok,not too worried about the playlist button...never use it.

Would it be possible to add a chart button somewhere where it is not hidden, or accessed through a pop up menu ?

Hi Paul,

No it has to be within the confines of the skin tool I am afraid to say. Sadly you cannot add extra items, unless they are meant to be there in the first place.

Regards

Mark

Hi Chaseruk,

Download the below .ini attachments, then in the Blue_Neon folder, either rename the existing menu_v2.ini and menupopup_v2ini to something like menu_v2(OLD).ini and then place the downloaded attachments from below OR just simply copy and replace the existing files with the ones attached here.
This should swap the playlist and charts buttons around on the main menu and pop up menu.

Hopefully this will do what you're wanting.

Good afternoon Mr Norville,  ;D
Have I inadvertently trod on some toes?? ?? ??  :D :D :D lmao
Actually, yes I am a part timer on these forums at the moment, sadly however, it's definitely not through personal choice.  :downer
But I do like to keep sticking my nose in here from time to time  ;D :D ;D :D ;D :D 8) 8) lol
and to quote Arnie, "I Will Be Back" :beer

Good to have you back anyway, was getting lonely by myself, even gaucho seems to have gone quiet.

Coffee break for me, can't be arsed to sit at the computer nowadays, tried tagging one album today, and gave up. It really is shocking that people put albums onto torrents, and the tagging is shocking, that you have to do 100 tracks yourself.
